In general, determine:

  • What the scope of your risk assessment will be (e.g., be specific about what you are assessing such as the lifetime of the product, the physical area where the work activity takes place, or the types of hazards).
  • The resources needed (e.g., train a team of individuals to carry out the assessment, the types of information sources, etc.).
  • What type of risk analysis measures will be used (e.g., how exact the scale or parameters need to be in order to provide the most relevant evaluation).
  • Who are the stakeholders involved (e.g., manager, supervisors, workers, worker representatives, suppliers, etc.).
  • What relevant laws, regulations, codes, or standards may apply in your jurisdiction, as well as organizational policies and procedures.

Here's another guide:

  • Identifying potential hazards
  • Identifying who might be harmed by those hazards
  • Evaluating risk (severity and likelihood) and establishing suitable precautions
  • Implementing controls and recording your findings
  • Reviewing your assessment and re-assessing if necessary.
